The 200,000 square foot outdoor art exhibit space has been painted over on Monday night in anticipation o being demolished. The owner, Jerry Wolkoff, won in court and staved off an injunction so that the building could be demolished and the site developed. The building, called a graffiti mecca, was a major tourist attraction in Queens. (© Richard B. Levine)
